So…holy shit, I think Robbie Thompson just left the ending of SPN vague enough that it’s entirely possible great chunks of S9 was in fact, shitty Metatron fanfic.
Like, it wasn’t directly stated, but there was a heavy implication that Metatron was controlling certain characters behavior.
Detailed spoilers and messy ramblings beneath the cut.
i am upset about the lack of representation too. i am upset that destiel may never be canon. i am upset that tptb on spn are too chickenshit to let their characters live the way they have developed.
but at the same time all of that (almost) doesn’t matter
because people are talking. even outside the fandom, destiel is being held up as an example of early lgbtqai+ representation on television and part of its acceptance into mainstream media. it’s part of a movement where people are taking their interpretation to the streets and fighting for what they see and feel, fighting for representation for themselves beyond the “funny gay best friend” and the “edgy lesbian roommate”
there is such life in destiel regardless of explicit canonization because people are talking about it and taking it seriously, even if tptb aren’t. regardless of what they do, destiel is going to follow supernatural into perpetuity as a huge part of its soul, and fuck if that isn’t beautiful
just think about how castiel was one of the first angels after gabriel, balthazar, and anna to break away from the ranks of heavenly automatons
think about his first halting steps into free will to stand by the winchesters’ side for a cause he believed in
think about how he simply wants to hunt with the winchesters and fight with them
think about how reluctant he is to be a leader
think about how much he thinks about all the angels he slew fighting raphael, including raphael him/herself
think about how much he doesn’t want more angel blood on his hands
but also just think about how he learned to drive
think about how he loves peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
think about how he smiles when he hears dean’s voice
think about how much he cares about sam and dean
think about castiel dammit
